Great, just great. The flight came in late and they won't have it until 8 or 8:30. Mutha F**ker!
OK, we're going to hit the road, grab our first ever Quiznos subs, and then get the game which is expected to be in by 8:00pm. We'll report back.

This is going to be a good game. It's a bit overwhelming right now trying to figure out the city, camera angles, icons, and the map, but the gameplay and controls feel right at home. I'm having no trouble driving.
So far I've gotten a hair cut, worked out a little, eaten some food, killed lots of people, run around a bit and generally done about 5-8 missions.
The whole "stats meters" thing is interesting. You have meters for stamina, fat, respect, sex appeal, etc. Six in all...I can't remember all of them right now. But, you work out and you're muslcle mass increases. You ride a bike or run around and you lose fat and gain stamina. Pretty cool. They seem to have made this a part of the game, but not a vital part, which is nice. An added feature without being annoying. Al and I think the in-game left corner map is bad. They chose bad colors for the icons, and yes, part of it is our TV, but past GTA's haven't been as bad on the same TV.
This is going to be a fun game. We're just scratching the surface now.
Oh, and perfectly terrible GTA cutscene graphics. Yay.

or onto our $249 3 year old Philips 27 inch TV. So, I'm not really worried about it. But, I could see how the lower left corner map would do that.

Quick question, is the missions set out more like GTA3 with the different gangs and stuff or is it crappy like VC with only 2 gangs and not much gang conflict?
GTA3 pwns VC btw :P
